Holidays are typically meant to be a time to relax and enjoy time with family, but it seems that one of the oldest Thanksgiving traditions is a few members of that family being sucked away to spend hours upon hours of their time cooking. If you’d like to break away from that tradition and truly spend some time with your family in 2018, then considering hitting up these restaurants that will be open on the holiday itself here in Knoxville TN and the surrounding area.
Citico’s Restaurant & Club
Enjoy a Thanksgiving brunch at Citico’s for just $38, or $19 for children 6-12 (5 and under eat free). The feat will include all sorts of traditional choices including entrees, sides and desserts in a buffet fashion. There are three seating options – at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. or 2:30 p.m. Make your reservation right away!
For eight hours kicking off at noon, you can head to the Oliver Royale for a traditional Thanksgiving meal for $49 per guest. Not just any meal, but a 3-course meal, with plenty of options to choose from. Start with a first course or appetizer before moving onto a traditional entrée and wrapping things up with an incredible dessert.
Ruth’s Chris Steak House
Lastly, you can enjoy a different (or another, if you’re feeling really hungry) 3-course Turkey Day feast by heading to Ruth’s. Kick things off with a choice of soup or salad before moving onto over-roasted turkey, sausage and herb stuffing and a choice of a signature side dish and finish things off with a duo of desserts. Plus, you’ll get sent home with something extra, all for just $39.95.
If you’d still like to get the family sat down around the dining room table but just don’t want to cook, consider another option: Corner 16. Their Holiday Feed Back is available to feed 5 for $60 or 10 for $115. The meal includes all sorts of traditional options, from turkey to cranberry sauce. However you spend your holiday, we just hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
